Trinidad Carnival 2012
The parties for carnival build up for longer than carnival itself.
My carnival kicked off with a 5am breakfast street party. £70 bought you free food (though you had to queue for an hour), free booze and Marshal Montana, T&T's top SOCA star, introduced as one of the top acts in the world. Hmm - never heard of him, but hey...
At 11 am he finally came on. And the wining and the grinding began....
....and it went on for 3 more days!
First of all Jouvert, carnival monday, with the mud and the paint and the wining and the car engine grease!
Then carnival tuesday, the glam - and every inch of Trinidad was on show - at least every female inch, and there were a few inches about!
Enjoy. I did!
